Sorry the updates have been few and far between. I’ve been a little busy lately.
And by busy, I mean playing World Of Warcraft.
I got some time for my account. And before you ask, I’m with the Horde. Blood Elf Hunter. Going Alliance is unacceptable, especially for a guy who posts on a blog mostly about the metal.
So while I was kicking some nerdy ass, here’s what I missed:
Shadows Fall’s Retribution Artwork
I’ve got nothing else to add.
New Footage of Devin Townsend Tracking Addicted
Yay, new music snippets!
Devin is always rad and never fails to impress.
New Megadeth Song Isn’t Boring | New Album Title
Megadeth released the song “Headcrusher”, and it’s better than what I expected of the ‘deth. It shreds. You too can listen to “Headcrusher” by calling 866.597.6342.
Why anyone would debut a song via phone this day in age is beyond me. Maybe to prevent early rips or leaks? The quality is obviously pretty low, you’re listening to it over the phone.
Headcrusher will appear on their upcoming album Endgame. It will be out some time in September on Roadrunner Records.
Deftones Delay Eros. FFFUUU-
But it totally has nothing to do with bassist Chi being in a coma.
“The songs recorded for ‘Eros’ are very special to us as they are the latest with Chi (and we certainly hope not the last); they have history and significant meaning to us. However, as we neared completion on ‘Eros’, we realized that this record doesn’t best encompass and represent who we are currently as people and as musicians. And although those songs will see the light of day at some point, we collectively made the decision that we needed to take a new approach, and with Chi‘s condition heavy on our minds while doing so. We needed to return to the studio to do what we felt was right artistically. Our inspiration and unity as a band is stronger than it has ever been before and we needed to channel that energy into our music, and deliver to our fans what you rightly deserve: the best DEFTONES record that we can make.
“The decision to hold off on releasing ‘Eros’ has no connection with Chi‘s condition or anything associated. This was, and is, purely a creative decision by the band to write, record, and deliver an amazing product. As a result we feel like this is the best record we’ve ever written. And although Chi is not playing bass with us, his presence is dramatically felt in our hearts and on our minds every day when we step into that studio, and you will feel it in the music.”
At any rate, I hope Chi makes a full recovery. From what I’ve read, he’s improving, so that’s good.
Behemoth Debut New Song With Obvious Title
New Behemoth track “Ov Fire And The Void“ can be listened to over at their myspace. Upon listening, I shrug my shoulders and I go back to playing WoW.
